Jeffrey and I have a special relationship. I am the oldest child in our family and he is the youngest. We are 10 years apart as well, to the month. Some would think that this makes it hard to relate to each other. I couldn't disagree more. I feel like I have always had such a special bond with him. We can talk about anything, even though he is a tough one to get to open up. I know that he knows I am here for him... always.
In my mind's eye he is about 7 years old, the age he was when I left for college.
And even though he is all grown up "officially" today, I still can hear him yelling "GG!!" with excitement when I came home on visits from school.
